From YouTube to blip.tv

Posted in Software, Technology

After the whole YouTube fiasco we have now switched to blip.tv for our own personal videos.

We’ve been using blip for our last couple of videos. I find the service fairly easy to use. In comparison, the files seem to load as fast as with YouTube and the quality seems a bit higher. However, the conversion into flash is slower and the ease of embedding is not as user friendly – I love that on YouTube the embed code is right there. With blip, you have to click a couple of times to get there.

As far as the embed video player is concerned, they seem equally good. The YouTube one "feels" more web 2.0 – it’s all curvy and whatnot. But the blip one is much more seamless and unobtrusive. Just a preference choice there.

I will continue to use YouTube from a consumer perspective – I search and embed them all the time. But from a copyright perspective, we are moving our own personal content to an area that allows us to assign the license per video. I am sure there will be many more video services to come, but I am pleased so far with blip.

What other video services have you used?
